Dutch Labor Party One Seat Short of Liberals, Poll Shows

The Dutch Labor Party is just one seat short of the Liberal Party as it continues to gain in support, a poll by Maurice de Hond published last night ahead of Sept. 12 elections showed.

Labor would get 32 seats if elections were held today, compared with 30 on Sept. 6, the survey showed. Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Liberals stood unchanged at 33 seats and the Socialist Party would get 23 seats, according to the poll.
